Poll - quoting yourself

Is quoting yourself tacky?

Yes

No
I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair. - AOC

We need context.  If quoting yourself to show clarify with someone that is not what you said, it's not tacky in the slightest.

If it's a mud slinging contest between you and Jimbo....  fair play!

So far, technically, you have "undefined" more than he has.  If you divide SoS by Jimbo, where SoS = 1 and Jimbo = 0, the result is undefined.

Oooh, but you're including your own and Jimbo's votes, aren't you?

So, really SoS = 2, and Jimbo = 1?

Do you have Siri?  Ask her what zero divided by zero is.  Don't stop until she tells you about cookies

No, it's not tacky, if you're trying to reinforce a point that someone's maybe missed.
